I had a great time at MWLUG this year. It was great to see so many familiar faces and friends, most of which I only see at the user groups. But, I just got home and thought I would share some of my thoughts and observations about the event and my take away about the state of our beloved Notes. As usual Richard Moy put together a great conference, so many thanks to him for making that event possible. The tone of the event was that most everyone is starting to realize that the Notes client is quickly dying. Domino and the NSF probably have a few more years left in them yet. I

OK, so today is the 2nd day I've spent with the Mobile controls from Domino 9.0.1. I must say the lack of a 9.0.1 Beta is quite obvious. So some of the "improvements" IBM made to the mobile controls are the addition of onBeforeTransitionIn/Out onAfterTransitionIn/Out. While these events are sorely needed, the implementation IBM chose to use doesn't work is kind-of odd. So, a brief rundown of the transition events pre 9.0.1. I posted a while back about how to implement these methods in your mobile application. Short version is do a dojo.connect to attach to the needed transition event of an appPage. Then in that function make an RPC call

I've been doing a lot of development work here lately, I mean a lot. Looking at different technologies and implementing them into XPages or at least attempting to. One of my tasks was trying to learn about OAuth and working with connections. I downloaded and installed the IBM Social Business Toolkit and SDK. I then followed several tutorials out on the web (most of them from IBM) trying to authenticate to GreenHouse with no luck. I ran into issue after issue. I got it all the way to being asked to login by GreenHouse and was given some "rotating outage" error message. Well, that can't be right, GreenHouse is up. So

I am humbled and honored to be among the people that were announced as the 2013 IBM Champions for Collaboration Solutions. To be among this group of extremely smart, giving and proactive people is such an honor. I just hope I can live up to the title (guess I need to blog and contribute a bit more). Thanks IBM and Congratulations to all the 2013 IBM Champions! Share This:
